Carnaval

In February, with an enviable weather, light and temperatures, the city dresses up in colour and fun for the Carnival. Through make up covering faces and bodies; fabrics that become costumes; music and dance of murgas and comparsas that fill the ambience; drag-queens with their vertiginous high platforms provoking transgression; queens inviting to dream almost in a magical way; multitudinous nights which are far too short; multicolour parades and street dances and, moreover, the character of a island city, bathed by the Atlantic, cosmopolitan, full of events, entertaining, welcoming, kind and amusing, like its people.

The world of Carnival and that of the Tales intersect in the poster that will spread the party, a work that draws on origami figures and plays with experimentation and manual work. Presented by the Venezuelan designer and illustrator Hansel González to the Call to project, launched by the Association of Designers of the Canary Islands (di-Ca) at the request of the City of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the poster emerges from its central element, an imposing Storybook, referents of the carnival and the capital of Gran Canaria.
